Yes I agree, chirp should work ok, used it on a Wouxun KG-UVD1P with no problems:

If you don't have an older computer, then you need to download the older windows drivers for XP or Vista, then install these on your Windows machine. It will object because the one it has is newer (and doesn't work), make it install the old one, programme the radio and then get grumpy, because the next time you plug in the cable, windows will notice the old driver and put back the non-working one. This is normal and a real pain - but you do get quicker at doing the driver install after thirty or forty time.
